So, it looks like you have few regrets about either purchase, but would've paid more rather than less for each to acquire them in better grade.  hm

Those definitely fit into the grail category.  BTW, love both books! (thumbsu

I thought I was nuts for paying what I did for my Ghost 6, but I was just not going to lose. I hadn't seen a nice copy in years and years. It was mentioned a few times on the boards as a "crazy" number, but the market swiftly caught up and then surpassed it. 

 

Great call on that Ghost #6 in particular! I remember that. Hard to believe it was just a few years ago.

I thought I was nuts paying $8700 in 1992 for the Edgar Church Mile High copy of Sensation Comics #2. Verzyl bought it from Bob Overstreet. I had just bought #3-30 so I took the plunge getting the #2.

Oh, this is pretty easy for anyone collecting during the 80s independent craze. I give you my albatross, Fish Police #1, "The next teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", for which this 14-year old paid at the time a whopping $65

(Thankfully I paid much less for Trollords #1)

On the plus side, fish police was a really good series that unfairly gets lumped with the garbage of the b&w glut

I liked Fish Police quite a bit.  I didn't pay nearly as much for my copy of #1, though.  I probably paid about 75 cents for it.  (It helped to work at a comic store and get things at cost).  :bigsmile:

 

The prices on a lot of popular books from the 1980s have crashed over the years, including Marvel and DC.  The Longshot miniseries and the Kitty Pryde and Wolverine miniseries issues used to get much higher prices than they do today.

When a listing says missing centerfold, is that just the single inside page at the very middle folded in half that's gone, or could it mean missing multiple inside pages?

I just bought this out of a Sunday Heritage auction because I though the cover looked cool...

The colors on the headdress are really cool. (thumbsu
